The Ritual

One teaspoon of dried nettle per cup of tea is a good ratio, though some people use more per cup water. For a stronger infusion, you can crush the leaves with a mortar and pestle just before adding the water.

Cover leaves with hot water and let site for 5 minutes. Sweeten with honey or stevia if desired. Start out by only having one cup of nettle tea to make sure you don’t have any reactions to it - no more than two
